Kinect’s Space Mapping

Youtube user RumblePackNZ posted a pretty interesting video. He turned on his Kinect, and then recorded the scene using a pair of IR goggles (from the Modern Warfare 2 Collectors Edition, no less.) The resulting image shows thousands of stationary dots blanketing the surfaces of the room. The Kinect projects these and then reads them back through an IR camera to interpret the space and motion of objects in the room.
